$700.00 for the Garmin Zumo? Damn. GPS costs aren't following the "rules" for consumer electronics. Their cost should be dropping as specialized chipsets are built and the software libraries are developed.

There are Garmin GPSes for around $100 - 200 at Target. The fact that the Garmin600 is specifically for motorcycles proabably means it is simply wildly overpriced like most accessories for motorcycles, boats, etc.

A giod pair of engineer boots goes for about $75. Label them "for motorcycles" and suddenly they are $200.

I just use my iPhone and the nav instructions are spoken into my BT helmet. Comes with the phone!

I can't see spending $700 on a stand alone unit.

The bottle opener would be a plus in the ol Chateau Sarnali garage. Since only snooty English beer is served one must use the vice grips or pliers to peel the top off. A skull bottle opener would fit right in with the Jesus candles and fly paper strips...

I just use the bronzed skulls of all the victims who ask "what's the 1% mean?" to open my snooty micro-brew lager.....
